Customer Reviews

The lyrics are INTENTIONALLY silly because it adds to the songs cuteness.
F. Hussain
I always feel like Autotuning an entire song is not really good, though, and suggests the singer cannot really sing well.
F. Abbott
I don't even have to talk about more reasons why I hate this song because you probably know the deal here.

Let's take a look @ "Friday" shall we:

"7am, waking up in the morning
Gotta be fresh, gotta go downstairs"

Waking up quite early, and knows she has to be fresh for her day. She has a routine that is not quite so familiar to her that she can get by without reminding herself of it. We all do this but sometimes we forget to question why??? We follow societal norms only to be let down but here Rebbecca sees it as "fresh", a snake shedding its skin and being reborn. It dances between the sub conscious and the conscious. She was asleep upstairs but awakens to a new consciousness and likens it to a downstairs motion thus a rebirth of one's self. Going from unconscious to conscious. She lives on neo platonic astral plane but realizes that it is time to revisit the conscious world and explain her new found consciousness.

"Gotta have my bowl, gotta have cereal"

Clearly in a central world it is necessary for need a bowl for cereal however here Ms. Black is metaphorically speaking of feeding your consciousness the bowl it self is much like a Tibetan bowl used for meditation in order to feed the mind.

"Seein' everything, the time is goin'
Tickin' on and on, everybody's rushin'"

Here she has entered an either further decent into from sub conscious and conscious at the same time. She has realised that conscious time now matters and can no longer be on be on the astral plane of the time as cosmic time. She has figured this out at the age 13.

"Gotta get down to the bus stop
Gotta catch my bus, I see my friends"

The bus itself represents a metaphor for those who are choosing an outer dualistic experience.

I used to get so confused trying to remember the order of all the days. What comes after Thursday? The frustration had me on the brink of suicide.

Then Rebecca Black released this song and I was saved.

Now, I know that yesterday was Thursday Thursday. And today is Friday Friday.

Of course, this means that tomorrow is Saturday and Sunday comes afterwards.

I still struggle with Monday, but I'm hoping she releases another song.

It is not often in an amazon customer's life that he is witness to an accomplishment of such magnitude that few, if any, are even able to comprehend it. Precocious wunderkind Rebecca Black's "Friday" is the pinnacle of musical achievement.

"Fun, fun, thinkin' 'bout fun," Black opines, drawing listeners into a whirlwind of introspective pondering. "Yes!" this listener cried out when he first heard the lyric, "I DO think about fun!" Insights such as these into the complexities of the human experience evoke a range of emotions, and Black drives this home with apt repetitions of the word "fun" to keep us grounded.

Black also manages to wring us into reality, lest we get lost in the fantasy she conjures, with lyrics such as, "Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday. Today is Friday, Friday. Tomorrow is Saturday. And Sunday comes afterwards." These wise words are a bittersweet reminder than time is slipping dangerously through our fingers, and Black calls upon us to live our lives to the fullest after her example, taking such risks as climbing into a convertible driven by a spped-craving 13 year old, singing, "7:45, we're drivin' on the highway. Cruisin' so fast, I want time to fly."

Not one to be imprisoned by stodgy conventions such as grammar, coherent sentences, or a consistent narrative thread, Black experiments in surrealism by bringing in heavy-hitting hip hop artist Pato. "Passin' by is a school bus in front of me. Makes tick tock, tick tock, wanna scream. Check my time, it's Friday, it's a weekend." This mass of poetry, delivered in spectacular fashion, brought forth tears of inspiration and shame that I had let so much of my life slip by, not living like it was friday, and not living by Black's mantra: "We so excited.

This YouTube video has become a family favorite, for ALL the reasons. So much sweet silliness. So I finally bought the track -- but it doesn't include the rap?? How can this happen? I'm crushed!

After paying a whole $0.99 for this song, I found out that a rap wasn't included!

It's a shame, because today, the rap is the replacement for a guitar solo. Without the guitar solo or the rap, the song becomes... dull. It would be SO much more exciting if there was a rap portion! It would make the entire song relevant to our lives! It would provide existential justification for the purpose of our being! Anyway, since there was no rap in this song, I took the liberty of jotting a few lines down. What do you think?

(Rap starts right after "I don't want this weekend to eeennnnd")

"R.B., Rebecca Black. So chillin in the front side, in the back seat, i'm driving, cruising:
fast lanes, switchin lanes, with a car up mah side!
Passin' by is a schoolbus in front of me makes tick tock tick tock wanna scream!
Check my time, it's friday, it's the weekend, we gonna have fun, c'mon, c'mon y'all..."

(Back to "Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday..")

Specifically, I'd have the producer of this song sing the rap, preferably while he's in a stationary car in front of some camera, pretending to drive.

I really think it'll make this song famous!
